Traveling a bumpy road!

So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've learned to stop eating when full and I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking much of the time. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister Véronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems. I also have been blessed with a new grand-daughter ...

I also have been blessed with a new grand-daughter in May 2013 for a total of 5 grand-daughters and 1 grandson-the first and eldest of the grands..

I try to keep smiling and stay positive-not always easy, but the good Lord helps. I love life from infancy to old age.
I retired May 25th, 2012.
My 5 children and 6 grandchildren are an important part of my life.

With the exception of my cholesterol levels and a mobile blood pressure I am relatively healthy. Both my son's care and my weight contribute the occasionally elevated blood pressure. My cholesterol has been high since I was in my 40's and I am allergic to statin drugs which limits what I can take for the cholesterol problem. (I am in gray in the first picture, and turquoise in the second)

SparkPoints: 68,861

Fitness Minutes: 63,894

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.
2. I will walk no LESS THAN 5,000 steps and work my way past 10,000.
3. to be more positive, and supportive to those around me, especially new widows.



My Program:
To watch what I eat, most importantly cutting back on cholesterol and sodium. Work to change a sedentary life into a more active life, which is difficult for me. Even though retired, I'm knitting and sewing more that makes for a still sedentary life.

Personal Information:
I was born in Bedford, Ohio of a Belgian mom and an American GI. I have lived in Belgium, Ohio, Florida and am currently in Georgia. I am widowed and have five grown children, one of whom had a traumatic brain injury June 2010 and for whom I am the court appointed Custodial Guardian.

Other Information:
I like to knit, sew-when I have time and play with my grandchildren.
I'd love to be able to travel again, to go back to Belgium and Austria, to see Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.

I have a headache again today and more nasal congestion. Ugh. Reekie is not feeling good either. I just gave him a breathing treatment.

I like exotic spicy food but it often doesn't like me any more.

Thanks for thinking about Reekie and me. We are both getting old and weary.

Thanks for wishing me well for surgery today. I don't go in until 11:30 and surgery is scheduled for 1:30. The surgeon scheduled the room for 2 hours. Add on two to three hours in recovery and I figure I won't be home until about 6. I probably won't do much more than eat a little and go to bed.

I hope you feel better!!

The bread sounds really good. I have not had anything like that for quite a while.

LOL. You are blessed to have a lot of energy. I am normally like that and wish I had it too right now. You and I have a lot to do and need a lot of energy.

I am taking care of myself. Stress is what does me in and I'm trying hard to keep it at bay.

I think hubby is warming up to the idea of wainscoting. He wasn't thrilled at first. I was an interior decorator before I was a nurse and I have unusual taste. If I die poor hubby will end up with a really feminine appearing house but that's okay. He can get rid of the "fluffy" stuff or it will be a ghost shrine to me. Either way it will work out okay in the end. LOL.
